As described on the label, it is the “original fresh spice“. But it doesn’t have that overtly spicy, Christmassy scent of the more popular Old Spice. Or as my 20-year-old sister Ari explains, “It also has this amazing powdery undertone.”

Deodorant was introduced in the late 19th century.
The first deodorant to kill odor-causing bacteria was called Mum and was trademarked in 1888. It was a waxy cream that came in a metal jar and used zinc oxide to control odor. Back then, deodorant was a fairly new idea as most women just used perfume to smell fresh.
As James May explains, deodorants work by killing the bacteria on your skin, and they also work as an antiperspirant by reducing the amount of sweat. Modern antiperspirants were invented in the 1940s – they contain an active ingredient (almost always an aluminum compound) to reduce the amount of sweat.
This cream deodorant is best applied after a shower or bath. Take a small amount (the size of a dime) of cream deodorant onto your fingertip and apply to the center of your armpit and rub in gently until smooth.
Aluminum chlorohydrate is a compound used as an antiperspirant. Aluminum chlorohydrate is a group of water-soluble aluminum complexes with the general formula AlnCl(3n-m)(OH)m. It’s found in over-the-counter hygiene products up to 25% as an active antiperspirant.
Arrid is a type of antiperspirant and deodorant originally introduced by Carter Products in 1935 and sold by Church & Dwight in 2001. The active ingredient is up to 20% Aluminum Zirconium Tetrachlorohydrex-Gly.
When you stop using an antiperspirant, you will notice a significant increase in the growth of underarm odor-causing bacteria. You may also feel extra moisture because your body is sweating, which is completely normal and natural.
Switching to an aluminum-free deodorant can certainly be a good first step to prevent irritation. However, some aluminum-free deodorants contain astringents like alcohol that kill any bacteria on your skin to help prevent odor.
The first deodorant to kill odor-causing bacteria was called Mum and was trademarked in 1888, while the first antiperspirant to inhibit both sweat production and bacterial growth was Everdry and launched in 1903.
